In honor of Pride month, let's meet and discuss Mean by Myriam Gurba, a memoir described as both brave and humorous. All are welcome.

For more info about the book, here's the summary from the book jacket:

"True crime, memoir, and ghost story, Mean is the bold and hilarious tale of Myriam Gurba's coming of age as a queer, mixed-race Chicana. Blending radical formal fluidity and caustic humor, Gurba takes on sexual violence, small towns, and race, turning what might be tragic into piercing, revealing comedy. This is a confident, intoxicating, brassy book that takes the cost of sexual assault, racism, misogyny, and homophobia deadly seriously."
